Ease Into It

January comes with a flood of messages to set goals, make resolutions, establish new routines and, generally make some kind of change. It’s okay to ease into it. 

Depend on vs. Dependent on

It is both a blessing and a curse to find a great assistant. When the fit is right, it’s very easy to fall into a place of trust and for a client to relinquish total control to their VA. Many clients forget it’s still their business and they need to know how to manage it, especially when their VA is unavailable.

Be Honest

When you get clear on your needs, you can be honest with yourself, your budget and anyone who comes along to help.

Risks Worth Taking

Every day, business owners make difficult choices. It comes with the territory of creating something all our own. One of the biggest risks we take when our load becomes too big is to hire help.

Walk My Talk

For years as a virtual assistant, I’ve been telling business owners to hire support and hand off tasks that someone can do better, faster, or for less. It was time to walk my talk and follow my own advice.

Know Your Season of Life

Spring has sprung. It’s like I've come out of hibernation and can actually focus on my goals again. My mind is already reaching for new ideas, new opportunities, dreaming new dreams, but I still feel like slowing down. Can you relate?

Stop Tolerating Tolerations

Identifying the tolerations in your life and eliminating them can reduce overwhelm and anxiety, give you more energy, create a sense of calm, and un-clutter our mental space.

Know my limits

Everywhere I look people are talking about goal setting and setting resolutions. I’m exhausted just reading about it. Chalk it up to getting older, but my stamina isn’t what it once was. I did something different for myself this year.
